Seattle Seahawks GM John Schneider doesn't regret Percy Harvin signing

While Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Percy Harvin’s 2013 season may (or may not) be in doubt thanks to a hip injury, one person expressing no doubts about the less-than-ideal situation is the Seattle Seahawks general manager John Schneider.

Schneider acquired Harvin from the Minnesota Vikings back in March, giving up first-round, third-round, and seventh-round picks on top of giving Harvin a five-year extension worth $25.5 million guaranteed. That’s…a steep price for a guy with one hip. Schneider told USA Today that it was a move the team had to make, though:

Going into the offseason, we felt very good about our team and our core of players. The opportunity to acquire a guy like Percy was extremely unique for us. We had to. We had to do that.

 

We firmly believe that, just because we were aggressive making this move — and obviously he is an incredible talent — there’s a lot of talented guys. We like the talent on our football team. There’s a lot of talented players all throughout the National Football League. But like anybody always says, it’s never, ever about one player. It’s about the team (USA Today).

Harvin is a great all-purpose talent and Seahawks fans will certainly want to see him on the field this season. Perhaps he can bum some PEDs off his teammates to help with the recovery?
